About the Shelton Challenge
The General Shelton Leadership Challenge is a one-week summer residential experience for rising freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors in high school that takes place on the campus of Methodist University in Fayetteville, N.C. The Shelton Challenge is designed to help students expand their knowledge and skills of what it takes to be an effective leader. General Shelton’s cornerstones of values-based leadership – honesty, integrity, compassion, diversity, and social responsibility – are the foundations of the experience. The core curriculum focuses on leadership roles and accountability, team building, leadership styles and situations, social responsibility, integrity as a leader, public speaking, changing behaviors, and goal setting.
